Vista Support Ends April 2017: Please Take Heed!

Do you remember what Microsoft did a few years ago? They shut down Windows XP support. Most took heed. But some didn’t, and suffered for it. So we tell you now: Vista Support Ends April 2017: Please take heed!

Microsoft will end support for Windows Vista on April 11, 2017. So that’s less than a month from now. However, let’s say you insists on using Vista after this date. Then you will open yourself up to many security threads, from malware to spyware to ID theft. Also, keep in they don’t support IE 9 either. A Microsoft spokesperson said most apps and devices don’t work with Vista. That’s one reason why it’s shutting down.

But it seems like most Microsoft users cut ties with Vista already. Microsoft charts say less than 1%, 0.78%, even use Vista anymore. However, that still adds up to thousands of Vista users. Microsoft released Vista in 2007. It’s had nothing but problems and complaints ever since. It had buggy features and became the laughing stock of the computer repair industry. If fact, more people clung to XP because of it. Windows 7 and 8 didn’t do much to help the case. In fact, Windows 10 was the software that eventually got people off Widows XP.

So let me say it again: Vista Support Ends April 2017. Look to your neighbor and say Vista support ends April 2017. I was here when Windows XP ended. And in our Boston computer service shop, quite a few customers got upset when their computers messed up. They told us they used XP. A tech would say, “Well, don’t you know Microsoft quit supporting XP.” To which the customer replied, “Nobody told me!” Every news media outlet, every computer store, every Microsoft outlet, and others, told them Widows XP was coming to an end. It sounds to me they were either living in caves or time machines. Or, they just didn’t want to listen. Don’t end up like them. Vista support ends April 2017: Please take heed, won’t you?
